Miss McLeod's, Phillip O'Beirne's Delight


Published October 3, 1936


Fiddle solo, Kathleen Brennan - piano, Decca 12085. A marvelous fiddle setting of the classic reel, replete with staccato bowing, a very lively rhythm, and a run down to the fiddle's low G. This is followed by a fiddler's tune named after one of Coleman's instructors, whose son James "Lad" O'Bierne also emigrated to New York City. He was a marvelous fiddler in his own right as evidenced by a set of acetates recorded privately, and became friends with Coleman when he arrived. This tune is transcribed in the book Ceol Rince na Eireann Vol. 1, from the playing of the great Dublin fiddler Tommy Potts. O'Bierne unfortunately only made one commercial recording, a duet with fellow fiddler Louis Quinn, which may be heard (along with a pair of homemade acetates) on the CD Milestone at the Garden.
